Aaahh! Not that previous paintings haven't been wonderful but this is lovely lovely lovely...Bxx
I love this one, Julian! The figures are fantastic.
These figures are definitly moving rushing to see all the paintings...great sense of movement
Your versatility knows no bounds Julian, always a delight. This is quite wonderful.
I really love the figures in you last two paintings. The blonde woman on the right is a classic visitor to the Louvre. She did not resist a purchase in the store there, and with a sense of a mission, she is on the move to her next stop. I hope that you include more figures in your paintings. I love the way that you painted them here and in the previous painting in the Tulleries.
I don't know why that is, but there is something from... Francis Bacon in these malleable and anomalous faces!
This is great...and just watched Untouchable - so was coming over all Parisienne anyway!!
Agreed.No detail,but so much conveyed. So much said, so simply. Love it.
Wonderful sense of movement! I really enjoyed this "change of scene" series whilst you have been in PAris...clearly, you have too! Wonderfull, you really are very good at nuance with almost no detail, all suggestion.excellent.
In fact, this painting reflects the "Fly-on-the-wall" process, just before the whole visual adaptation: no better tool for suggesting both transient life movement and the desperate try to stop that passing of time. This "Postcard from Paris" leads to metaphysical meditations as when we tenderly look at our dearly departed in an old family album.
And speaking of people, I am reminded how wonderful it is of you to allow us to share comments from your other fans--who have put into words what I could not!
You've really captured the sense of movement and bustle here - love it, and quite different, just as wonderful
